AUTHENTIC RELATING at Westgate

About the workshop

Authentic Relating: Facing the Unknown

We live in unprecedented times, where even New Years' resolutions must be a sketch against the unknown. It's hard to take in the full impact of what is happening in the world. To hold it in our hearts and minds, we must become bigger than we have been. We must see the past with clear eyes, and the future with acceptance of uncertainty.
In this workshop, we'll reflect on the skeletons and angels we've experienced in the year past, and the gifts and weaknesses they have given us. We'll call in some higher wisdom to support us. We'll find strength in connection, celebrate our human capacity, and ready ourselves for the year ahead - whatever it will bring.


Authentic Relating (AR) is the practice of freely expressing your true experience in the company of others.

Expressing in this way enables you to create connections in the world based on who you really are.

Authentic Relating practices create a safe, intentional space - rooted in play and supported by clear boundaries - to create meaningful and enjoyable connections to self and other. By learning Authentic Relating skills, you can drop your conditioned relational habits, and learn to relate with yourself and others from a deeper more authentic expression of your truth.

You'll be led through exercises designed to help you heal your relationship with yourself, and learn to be comfortable in your own skin—then connect with others as your newfound 'authentic' self. Put simply, this is a place to practice being human.

 

This is an opportunity to:

 

Expand your friend circle
Learn something about yourself
Explore the human experience
Have the courage to reveal something about yourself
Have the compassion to hold space for another as they reveal themselves
Feel and express lots of JOY!

Trained as an authentic relating facilitator, I utilize Integral Theory for teaching different practices in acting, movement, and intimacy.I create brave spaces to bring people together to show up fully and authentically.
Authentic Relating Games allow you to intimately know yourself and create a space for decentralized processing. As an intimacy permissionary, I use games to go to places that are from ecstatic joy to deep sorrow. All of you welcomed and invited to my workshops utilizing Integral Theory incorporating elements of psychodrama, tantra, authentic relating, and improv.
